Today we decided to hop off the tourist trail and be a bit more local so we went food shopping in Matara with one of the lovely guys looking after us at 3 Sisters.
We got into our tuk tuk and took our lives in our hands as we drove to the food market in the rush hour. We walked through the market looking at the unfamiliar vegetables and fruits and smelling all the fish.
Matara is like a mini Galle with its own forts, and we had a walk through Star Fort with a museum with skeletons and moats with mating turtles. Not quite what you see when you are heading to Waitrose.
Next stop the supermarket for cashews. Bizarrely Christmas carols were playing and the whole experience seemed a tad surreal.
Now back to the serenity of our house and the pool beckons.
